Tony winner Laura Benanti will ring in 2015 the only way a Broadway performer can — by starring in a New Year's Eve cabaret show.

Joined by musical director Todd Almond, Benanti will premiere her show on December 31 at 11pm at the nightclub 54 Below. It's their first brand-new collaboration since 2013's In Constant Search for the Right Kind of Attention, which was recorded and released on the Broadway Records label. Tickets for the New Year's Eve show include cover charge, a four-course dinner, a champagne toast, tax, and gratuity.

Benanti's many Broadway credits include Gypsy (for which she won her Tony), Nine, The Sound of Music, Into the Woods, Swing!, The Wedding Singer, In the Next Room (or the vibrator play), and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. On television, she has been seen in Go On, The Playboy Club, Starved, The Sound of Music Live!, and Nashville. Benanti has also appeared on TheaterMania in the video series Laura Benanti Explains Shakespeare, Laura Benanti Explains the Broadway Season, and Laura Benanti Auditions for NBC's Peter Pan Live!
